Session Abstract

WPEWebKit[1] is a WebKit flavor (also known as port) specially crafted for
embedded platforms and use-cases. During this talk I would present WPEWebKits
architecture with a special emphasis on its multimedia backend based on
GStreamer[2] and implementing support for the MSE[3], EME[4], MediaCapabilities
specifications. I would also present a case study on how to successfully
integrate WPEWebKit on i.MX6 and i.MX8M platforms with the Cog[5] standalone
reference web-app container or within existing Qt5 applications, using the WPEQt
QML plugin.
